English UK: with 400+ members teaching quality English across the UK
English UK: promoting quality English language learning in the UK
After three and a half years in the role, Sarah Cooper is moving on from her role as chief executive of English UK at the end of January 2020.
We would like to thank Sarah for her all her work promoting UK ELT and wish her well in her future career.
The job of an academic manager in UK ELT is a wide-ranging and challenging role.
To help you, our ELT Conference is full of practical tips and best practice from teacher retention and peer observations to work pressure and wellbeing, performance management and employee engagement.
English UK QUIC participants reported 419,368 student weeks in Q3 2019 - over double Q2 2019 and up from 396,783 in Q3 2018. The quarter saw a stable year-on-year development of student weeks with a minor increase of 0.2%.
English UK and UK ELT had a strong presence at this year's ICEF Berlin Workshop with an Education is GREAT branded village, two seminars on UK market insights and a prominent stand promoting UK ELT to agents.
The impact has been highlighted in English UK's QUIC figures for the summer of 2019, which show a significant drop in student numbers compared to the previous year. This adds concrete evidence to the increasing reports of visa refusals we have been receiving from members, and we will continue to lobby UKVI in Istanbul and the Home Office about this issue.
In the English language teaching market there is ongoing growth in demand for English for Specific Purposes. But, as agents know better than anyone, professional clients are facing several challenges.
English UK member Lake School of English have sadly announced a managed closure. On Friday 1 November, the school said goodbye to their last students.
